The main role of the Colfax PTA is to build strong working relationships among our parents, teachers and school staff in order to provide services and programs in support of students. Dues are required to be considered a member. Here at Colfax, dues are $13, part of which goes to the national organization to help with legislation and advocacy and part of which we get to keep for our school related programs.
Who are we?
The PTA board consists of two volunteers per position. Most serve a two year term. Our board is elected in the Spring of each year. If you're interested in running for a position, please see the front office for a form, check back on this site during the nomination process or contact a current board member below.
